Mr. Guillaume also formulated Arcos Brasil rosin, available in dark for cello or light for violin and viola.
The hypoallergenic Pierre Guillaume French rosin is a result of lengthy research by Mr. Guillaume. Applies with ease to newly rehaired bows, minimal release of rosin dust reducing the frequency of application to the bow hair. Great for violin, viola and cello bows, it truly works as well as it looks. In addition to the wood box, this excellent rosin also comes in a new traditional and attractive French tin package.
We have designed our pegs in the traditional Hill and Heart models and have developed our own very elegant Sando model as well as a concave French model.

These pegs are made with standard and oversized shafts for violin, viola and cellos.
Again we have listened to the demands and make today a variety of models of chin rests. All are fitted with high quality non-allergic hardware.
Our tailpiece’s design is a result of generous input from some of the most respected luthiers in the business. French and Hill models are made from our hardwoods resulting in a strong and lightweight tailpiece, the best combination for a great sound.
